It is well with my soul.
I got into a wreck yesterday. It hurt. I was upset because my car is ruined. But my husband was happy.
Why? Because I was still alive. He had a momentary loss of joy when he was afraid I was hurt and non responsive. When I let him know I was fine, his world began to turn again. For him, it was a good thing.
Remember, no matter what happens to you, there is always something GOOD to come from it. I was reassured in this problem moment that my husband loves me and that more than anything I need, I have love.
So when trouble comes your way and trials try to stop your joy, remember to sing – IT IS WELL.
